a professor at uc berkeley and the author of "aftershock: the next economy in america's future." secretary reich, thank you for joining us. i wanted to start with this debt to gdp ratio, because it's such a stunning number. it seems that anything could almost tip that over the balance, over the scales, and a disaster of this proportion, could it mean that they just simply cannot pay back their debt? >> well, cenk, first of all, this is a human tragedy of enormous proportion, talking about the economic consequences should not distract our attention from really those human beings who are at the core of this tragedy. but, yes, you are right. there is also a severe and substantial economic risk here. japan has had a hard time coming out of the recession. in fact, for the last 15 years, its economy has been very fragile. and if it turns out that this tragedy undermines the japanese economy, or at least forces japanese consumers and also japanese companies to hold back from the market somewhat, and i think that's likely, this could find themselves in another deflationary spiral. and that has con

. we need to. but, we can't cut into our seed core. we can't cut into things that help america grow and create jobs like education or cancer research or food safety, things like that. and i think what you're finding, chuck, is you're going to find a turning point here. now that every democrat has rejected hr-1 and clearly doesn't have the votes to pass the senate, the ball shifts to speaker boehner. we've put some cuts on the table. we're willing to put more. but they have not said a single place where they would move off hr-1 and now it can't pass. so actually the action in the next week or two will occur behind-the-scenes. speaker boehner will have to meet with this e78s freshman republicans. some said they won't bouj. if he won't he may have to make a coalition with the democrats in the house. hr-1 can't pass. we're willing to be reasonable and meet in the middle as long as it doesn't cut the kinds of things that help america grow. the american people gave us two missions cut unnecessary programs but grow the economy and create jobs. we think we can do both. hr-1 only focus one.

. it's a great way of asking about the history of america. fred harvey turns out ran the first chain of anything in america. he ran the restaurants and hotels in chicago and los angeles and civilized the american west. his story had never been taken seriously journalistically before, and i was lucky not only to recreate this multigenerational family business, the harvey's were the biggest in the 1880s through the 1940s, but fred's stuff was in the family. it was a very personal book as well, and it gave the insight that most people know fred harvey because of the harvey girls. it was a great american journey for me. being from the east, this was my first trip to the west. i recreated the life of the west which easterners don't understand. they think of it as a whole other world. it was interesting telling the story of the west based on what easterners don't know. >> michael? >> well, thank you. basically, all of my book projects start the same way. i get interested in a subject and can't find enough published to satisfy my own curiosity, so i realize i'm going to have to write it mys
